27 JANUARY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Everything about charlieonnafriday is infectious — he can both sing and rap, is a natural lyricist, and has an effortless confidence and charm that emanates from him; it’s why his single “Enough” landed in the Top 20 on Pop Radio and has a room full of fans swooning over a song he hadn’t yet released during his ONNAFRIDAY College Tour. Today, he continues his hot streak by releasing the aforementioned single. “That’s What I Get” is a creative continuation of “Enough,” where Charlie realizes he cut off a relationship sooner than he should’ve and misses that person. It’s a melodic, low-key pop banger that he created with Monsters and Strangerz (Rihanna, Maroon 5) and Aldae (Justin Bieber). In the video, Charlie reflects on a breakup as he drives around the city and catches a glimpse of his ex in a new relationship, lamenting, “I guess that’s what I get.”

To understand charlieonnafriday and where he’s headed, it’s important to go back to where he started. Raised in many neighbourhoods in and around Seattle, but noting the Greenlake neighbourhood as his home, Charlie says, “I just like capturing moments.”
When COVID hit in 2020, Charlie was a junior in high school and started thinking big-picture about what he wanted to do with his life. He reflected on what brought him the most joy, and knew music was it — specifically, continuing the lineage of iconic artistry that comes out of a city like Seattle. And then he manifested a career. By his senior year, he focused his songwriting and landed a hit with the slow banger “After Hours.” The song distilled the essence of the party, connecting with young people all over the world, as well as older adults remembering the good old days.
From there things happened fast. Just a few months later, Lil Keed wandered into the studio where Charlie was recording in L.A., heard what Charlie was working on, and demanded a track together immediately. They made “Misfit” right on the spot, and Charlie calls it “one of the craziest experiences of my life.” That was lucky timing. But writing anthems like “Colorado Boulder” with Kidd G, about college girls who blow all their money on “Titos and weed” — that’s not luck, that’s skill.
For Charlie it all comes back to the genesis of Seattle and that penchant for bottling life; “I’m not the same person I was in high school,” he says, having seen the world a few times now. “But I’m still making songs in my bedroom. I’m still capturing moments. And hopefully people want to live through what I capture.”
